The ISH North America partners voted Dec. 18 to officially move the ISH North America trade show from every year to every other year, similar to how ISH Frankfurt is presented.

This year's show in Boston will maintain its announced dates of Oct. 14-16. The next ISH North America will then take place in Chicago in the fall of 2006. That will put the show on an event-year basis.
On the years when ISH North America is not held, show partners, the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association; American Supply Association; and Radiant Panel Association, will each hold their annual conventions at the same location, and jointly produce an education program in conjunction with Messe Frankfurt. In addition, there will also be an exhibit area, featuring tabletop exhibits.

Details to follow.
